Windows 10 is Working!

Windows 10 got an important update in November; the first major update since its original release. Microsoft says that it fixes a lot of the problems that popped up with the initial rollout and, so far, that seems to be true.

Since this November release arrived, I have received no calls for help with failed upgrades from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1.  I finally downloaded it to my main work computer and its working fine!

I’m not saying that you should take the upgrade, but if you’ve been wanting to make the switch but waiting for the early bugs to be worked out – it looks like that time has come.

On the other hand, if you use your computer for work and it’s working fine as is – then maybe just leave it as it is. This is especially true if you use specialized programs for your business.  Some specialized business software may not be ready for Windows 10 yet, so check with your business software’s maker before you make the jump.

And, if you have a working system with Windows 7 or 8 and you just don’t want to change it, then don’t! If your system is working and you like it as it is, then just ignore the update notices for Windows 10. No need to “fix” a system that isn’t broken!

If you do upgrade to Windows 10 and then decide that you don’t like it, then you have 30 days to switch back to your previous versions.  The reversion tool is built right into Windows 10, and is very easy to use – just a couple of clicks, and time for a cup of coffee.

And, of course, if I can help please give me a call.

Hoping, as always, that this is all quite clear and useful; nevertheless if I can fill in some details or help with anything on your computers, please don’t hesitate to call: Mike Pepper ~ Computer Guy. 845-855-5824
